Clint Brooks wins E-36 while setting a National Record!


    

CB Model Designs, as in Clint Brooks himself, made his first trip to Muncie, Indiana for the 2016 AMA Nationals. Clint came to what has to be termed one of the best weather nationals of recent times. The green fields of Muncie offered super flying conditions with light winds all week long. Typically a 5 day Nationals at Muncie this time of year has 3 days of good weather, one of which is exceptional, one really bad and one somewhere in between. This year all 5 days were exceptional. Clint sure picked a good Nationals to come to!

And what at trip to Muncie it was! Clint placed first in the popular E-36 event he racked up 9 maxes then narrowly missing the 10th with 114 sec. Clint flew his JOULEBOX 190 MK II for the first easy 3 maxes then switched to his APACHE II for the remainder of the flyoff flights with shorter 5-sec engine runs. His total of 19 min 54 sec was good enough for a National Record! Good flying Clint!

Clint also placed 2nd in Electric A flying his JOULEBOX 190 MK II with 7 maxes plus 88 sec on his attempt at number 8.

In the rubber events, Clint won the unofficial NFFS sponsored Small Mulvihill event with his soon to be released kit, the SUPER Y. In P-30, typically one of Clint's better events, he unfortunately dropped his 5th max, leaving him in 5th place at the end of the day. While I am sure this was somewhat of a disappointment for Clint, he got over it and concentrated on the other events.

Overall what a great showing at his first Muncie Nationals, congratulations Clint!

On a personal note, Clint's trip to the Nationals marked the first time he and his webmaster, Joe Mekina, met in person. Prior to this they have only corresponded virtually via email with an occasional phone conversation. It was good to meet you in person Clint!

May 16-17, 2009 - First and Third places at the 2009 San Diego Orbiteers and Fresno Gas Model Club dual meet, Lost Hills, California

At the 51st annual dual meet put on by the San Diego Orbiteers and Fresno Gas Model Club dual meet this past weekend, the Boomer MkII took first and third place wins. Clint reports that the day was great and getting good air was really no problem.

Clint Brooks flew 5 maxes and lost his model on the 5th max. Nobody was able to challenge him, so he stopped flying at that point rather than bring out a backup model. with such good weather, Clint says he was surprised there weren't any challengers but said it felt good to see the BOOMER perform so consistently.

Richard Browning flew his BOOMER and won third place with his as a first time competitor.
